"Ma'am, I've lost her signal"
The turbo lift doors swooshed opened as a disgruntled Vice-Admiral stepped off "Report" Callum said.
"Sir, we've just received a distress call from the Ark Royal, we've lost her signal and can't raise her. Exact position unknown, all we know is she could be somewhere along the border of the Beta Quadrant"
Callum moved over to the center console and looked at the little information they had "I leave Captain Saunders in command for one week and look what she's gone and done" Callum said.
